In a Funny or Die video that spoofs E. L. James' erotic novel, the former 'Wizards of Waverly Place' star teams up with comedian Nick Kroll, who plays charmless Carl Blue whom she lusts after.
Selena Gomez has taken part in the parody for erotica novel "Fifty Shades of Grey". In a brand new video from Funny or Die titled "Fifty Shades of Blue", the "Spring Breakers" actress manages to creep out an ugly house painter, played by comedian Nick Kroll, with her obsession of him.
The spoof video begins with footage of Gomez reading the steamy novel. Her routine is disrupted when a house painter named Carl Blue knocks on her door. As Blue stands on her doorstep, the 19-year-old wonders to herself in voiceover, "Who is this gorgeous guy in front of me? His eyes were staring deep in to mine. I could feel my cheeks getting flushed."
Blue's hacking and wheezing as well as his comment that Gomez's house smells like cat food apparently doesn't reduce her lust for him. As Blue paints her wall blue, Gomez continues to stare at him longingly and obeys his suggestion to make photo of him. Before he drives away, she even makes an attempt to establish further contact with him.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is E.L. James' New York Times best-selling novel that started as fan fiction series. It delves into the relationship between an innocent college student, Anastasia Steele, and an older mega-millionaire, Christian Grey. As the book becomes a hit, it quickly gains attention from Hollywood as its movie rights have been acquired by Universal Pictures and Focus Features.
While Gomez didn't mind to take a jab at the steamy novel, fellow young actress Kristen Stewart seemed to be uncomfortable reading the book itself. The "Twilight Saga" actress was asked to read a steamy section of the book during an interview with MTV News, but after only reading a few lines out loud, she closed it and said, "I can't believe I'm doing this."
